responding to the elizabeth warren/scot brown debate that happened in boston. that was a barn burner. but before that, i have to tell you we had a remarkable late in the game development in the presidential race today. it is october 1st. but what happened today is roughly the opposite of an october surprise, i guess? today the republican party announced that in five of the nine or so swing states in the presidential race this year, in the five states that you see marked with an x on this map, the republican party is stopping its voter registration efforts. the republican party has suddenly and totally as of october 1st given up on trying to register new voters in nevada, colorado, virginia, north carolina, and florida. each of those states is very much in play this year. and the republican party has announced that in these five key swing states, they are going to stop registering new voters. here are the voter registration deadlines for those states. typically what this would mean is between now and the last minute of the last hour on the last date that you see on the screen for each
, and i think scott brown and linda mcmahon and a lot of candidates out there are really going to be in trouble if the national republicans now go back on their word and come in and here try to fund todd akin. >> susan, do you agree with that? >> i agree that the democrats would really love to attach todd aakin to some of these critical swing state elections like brown in massachusetts. that's a real close race with democrat elizabeth warren, who definitely has her own problems with some of the things she's said and in connecticut as well. typically blue states where republicans have a real shot at winning. i think the problem for claire is in her own state is a state trending conservative. it's a state where people are unhappy with some of the major initiatives that claire mchas kill supported while p in congress. despite the gaffes she's running hard to hang onto her seat. this is not a done deal as i think her camp would be after he made those controversial statements last month. i think claire mccaskill, the fact she's talking about it shows she knows it's a competitive rac
a chance for scott brown to get re-elected in massachusetts? i guess that is the $64,000 question. >> and if mitt romney is running this badly in virginia george allen is going to have trouble too. >> exactly. >> he'll run a little ahead of romney but he can't survive a huge gap. >> if romney loses four or five percentage points it's going to be really rough. all right. mike, thank you so much. have a great weekend. >> happy weekend to you. >> all right. coming up we'll have claire mccaskill asking her why she's not more lady like when she is on the campaign trail. when we come back, can you believe that? when we come back the refs are back on the job. highlights from the nfl's thursday night games, next in sports with brian sullivan. you're just not going to want to miss that. keep it here on "morning joe." mika has jetted in from the south of france. she, too, will be here to talk about the nfl refs strike. ♪ [ male announcer ] it started long ago. the joy of giving something everything you've got. it takes passion. and it's not letting up anytime soon. at unitedhealthcare ins
, the lockout was lifted for the ravens, browns game. fans are relieved. >> thank god it's over. >> reporter: players and coaches are relieved. >> there will be calls we will be griping about, we will know these are the best in the world. >> reporter: the commissioner is apologetic. >> sorry to bring the fans to that, sorry to bring the general public to that. >> reporter: coaches, players fans want everything to go back to normal. three minutes into thursday's game, there was a sign, normalcy might not be far off. >> holding, offense, number 74, penalty -- >> reporter: the call against the ravens. >> you hear the noise. >> just a little. >> reporter: the crowd booed the only briefly heroic refs and balance was once again restored. it isn't the end of controversial calls, the calls are part of football. at least now faith has been restored that those most qualified to make them are finally back on the field. savannah? >> stephanie gosk in baltimore, thank you. >>> just ahead, coaches of the youth football team accused of offering incentives to kids, including cash, for hard hits on the field
've all said it was unacceptable what he did, and i think scott brown and linda mcmahon and a lot of candidates out there will be in trouble if the national republicans go back on their word and come in here and try to fund todd akin. >> is she right, mark murray? do you think todd akin could hurt mitt romney's chances even more? >> i don't know if it's necessarily mitt romney's chances, but republicans have a dilemma right now. todd akin doesn't have a whole lot of money. if they want to win back the senate they want to help him a little bit. claire mccaskill has a ceiling of 52, 53 percentage points. aakin is the underdog after his legitimate rape comments, but do republicans try to slip some money in to that missouri race, to linda mcmahon in connecticut? all indications are and we heard it from the head of the republican senatorial committee they don't see them helping out todd akin in missouri. that is something we'll watch over the next five weeks, because this is all about republicans being able to win winnable contests. >> mark murray, always a pleasure, sir. thank you. >>
it was like in nar mother's age, their father's age. a lot of people that i the landmark decisions like brown or roe v. wade or the public school prayer decision or certainly they read positive review of the simple rights act in '64 had to happen. i can imagine even under this court today, the court we have right now, saying no to the civil rights bill. it doesn't work there for interstate commerce. i don't know which way roberts would go on a similar question. those issues are close right now. >> it's complicated. one of the cases that could be considered is the voting rights act. that could be overturned. obviously affirmative action is going to be on the docket. that's a very complicated issue but it works both ways. there's a high chance this court will hear an appeal to doma. it could be the first court that establishes some progress sift with respect to gay rights. it could make a historic court even though the politics would suggest otherwise. it works both ways and it will be curious to see not only which cases they pick up in what manner and how the arguments play out because doma co
. they were trying to push that on other candidates running in more liberal areas, for example, scott brown in massachusetts. they are trying to use it to divide the republican party. and somewhat effectively. >> lynn, i want before i let you get out of here, you cover chicago politics very closely. came across the article about jesse jackson jr. and we haven't seen him in a while. he has held that seat since 1995. some are saying that as long as congressman jackson has a pulse, he will win that district. it seems kind of surprising for those of us outside chicago. is he a shoo-in at this point? >> let me explain. i've been reporting this for some time. even though no one has seen him in public since june 16th when he checked himself into the emergency room in george washington hospital, he really has nominal opposition. it is a heavily democratic district. he has a war chest of as of june it was $900,000. and while there is an independent out there and a republican nominee, they have raised virtually no money and are not running real campaigns. however, there is a demand for jackson to be
moves forward. the impact could be just as significant as the well mound brown vs. board of education, a landmark supreme court case in which the court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white student was unconstitutional. some seemed to think that one of the candidates, and i won't name which one, stands for turning back clock in many ways. essentially, minority voter participation will play an integral role in picking the winner of this year's presidential election. the town hall meeting tonight will strategically discussed the who and why minority voter participation and awareness can bring to the racial and ethnic minorities. the moderator for tonight's meeting is none other than roland martin you have seen him on cnn and you have heard him on the radio. he is a national award winning journalist and an author, a commentator where he has " washington watch." and he is a cnn analysis -- cnn analyst appearing on many shows. without further ado, i get your moderator, mr. roland martin. [applause] >> thank you very much. i'm certainly glad to be here

brown is fighting for re-election, a tough fight there, democrats hope they can win one back, fred. >> paul steinhauser, good to see you. thanks so much from washington. >> thank you. >>> all right, as world leaders gather in new york, trying to figure out how to end syria's civil war, the numbers coming out of the country show the crisis is getting far worse. youtube video showing just how risky walking in syria's biggest sy of aleppo it be. 122 people have been killed so far today. the death toll since march, 2011, 30,000. that figure from a syrian human rights group. and now the united nations is releasing this figure. 700,000. that's the number of refugees predicted to flow into other countries. the u.n.'s refugee agency is asking for more than $480 million in aid. as ts is happing, u.s. defense secretary leon panetta said today that u.s. intelligence has detected syria moving chemical weapons at some sites for security reasons. a detail that could influence a decision about u.s. military intervention in syria. remember, this is what president obama said about chemical weapons
